What should I bring to my Tax Appointment?

  • Bring a social security card for everyone listed on your return.
  • A social security statement showing your 2016 earnings or a military I.D. with your social security number are acceptable substitutes.
  • A picture I.D.
  • Your local property tax bill.  Without the tax bill the program cannot complete the State return for the tax rebate.
  • A copy of last years return.
  • Any tax documents you have received during 2016.  Take a look at last year's return, you should have the same documents this year unless there is a change in  your status.
  • If you are receiving a pension based on a deceased taxpayer's pension the program needs the deceased taxpayer's name, birth date and social security number.
